Chicken Corn Chowder

I am such a lover of soup, especially this time of year. I found this recipe over on A Cook’s Quest and I made one modification: I added bacon! My husband is a lover of bacon & I have to say I loved the added flavor! Here is the original recipe:

Chicken Corn Chowder


1 1/2 pounds chicken breast
1 T granulated garlic
1 T onion salt ( I added finely diced onions)
1 3/4 c chicken broth
2 cups of diced potato (make the cubes small so your potatoes cook faster)
2 cans of corn (can use fresh corn in season)
2 cups of milk (I used 1/2 & 1/2)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Dry parsley for the top

Add the first four ingredients to a slow cooker.  Cook 3-4 hours on high or 5-6 on low or until your chicken is cooked enough that you can shred it easily.

After shredding the chicken, add the potatoes and continue cooking until they are tender.  Add milk and corn and cook until warmed through.

**If desired, you can thicken with a little cornstarch and water or with a tablespoon of softened butter combined with 2 tablespoons of butter.  Add your thickener and cook into the chowder on high until thick and creamy**

Total Cost $4.04 (This made a full crock in my slow cooker so we had a full meal for 5 with leftovers)
Chicken 1 1/2 pounds @ $1.49 per pound $2.24
Seasonings $.50
Chicken Stock $.50 (1/2 of a carton that I purchased for $1)
Potatoes $.30 (part of the bag I bought for .79)
Corn $.20 (Got each can on sale for $.10!)
Milk approx. $.30

Ingredients: Chicken
Meal Type: Clean Eating

  • on the part with a **, it says for the alternatives, you can use softened butter to a tablespoon of butter… Is that right, or a type-o???
